[applause] >> thank you. thank you. thank you, governor. to all the families, first responders, the community, clergy, guests. >> scripture tells to not lose heart. inwardly, we are being renewed day by day. momentary troubles are achieving as a further blow with a further glory that far outweighs the moment. we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is not seen. what is seen as temporary but what is not seen is eternal. for we know the earthly tents we live in are destroyed and then we have a building with god, and internal house in heaven, not built by human hands. we gather here in memory of 20 beautiful children and six remarkable adults. they lost their lives in a school that could have been any school in a quiet town full of good and decent people. it could be any town in america. if you are a new town, i come to offer the love and prayers of a nation. i am very mindful that mere words cannot match the deaths of your sorrow, nor can they
to clean up new york and connecticut and new jersey from hurricane sandy and reauthorize some intelligence bills. so i mean, there's no real deal in the offing. there's nothing going on behind the scenes that would lead us to believe that anything would get done before january 1. >> all right. josh, out to you. obviously a lot of the discussion has been around the kind of deal that we would get if we do get something. if a deal does come through, it -- more likely will not be comprehensive, right? there's going to be a lot of negotiating that occurs after the first of the year. i guess my question to you is, does this leave the markets open to turmoil and more volatility as we head into january? >> the markets are going to be left open to turmoil and volatility, period. what we've seen is that despite the stakes getting higher, this isn't a game of poker but one of go fish. and no one seems to be fishing their wish. republicans are working with a weaker hand because they have to do a deal that involves a greater democratic coalition as a result of the failure of plan b. >> jake, question f
online. >>> it's become sadly routine in the small town of newtown, connecticut, where more funerals and memorials are taking place today, including those for 6-year-olds katherine lub bard, benjamin wheeler, jesse lewis, allison way yacht and grace mcdon knell. in washington this afternoon, vice president biden met with law enforcement officers as part of the new gun task force announced by president obama yesterday. >> the president is absolutely committed to keeping his promise that we will act and we'll act in a way that is designed even if he says we could only save one life, we have to take action. >> and tomorrow morning, one week after the elementary school shooting, the national rifle association, nra, will speak publicly for the first time since the tragedy. powerful gun lobby has long fought any effort to curb gun ownership but this week they promise to offer meaningful contributions to make sure that the tragedy never happens again and what do we think that looks like? let's put it through the spin cycle. i guess to start with the overall lay of the land i i applaud the p
, connecticut, that would be fine with them and it's just a matter of damage control. >> and will republicans have to pay in any way for something that has no spending cuts in it. >> ideally, a lot of these guys would like to wait until january so they can say we voted for a tax cut and the new status quo is where all of the taxes have gone up. i'm sure there will be primary challenges. >> what do you think? >> first of all, let me be clear. i think 50/50 at best for exactly the reason you cited. i can't imagine that reid and mcconnell are having a happy discussion right now, so there will be serious differences there. for example, if mcconnell insists on keeping the estate tax parameters where they are instead of going where the president is, that completely seals the deal and that's one piece. >> michelle, you've made that point throughout the show, and i partially agree with you, but i will tell you this. right now everybody in this town is focused on taxes and preventing 98% of households from seeing a tax increase and that's what's in these guys' heads and i expect you won't accept this,
senator from connecticut, my dear friend, senator joe lieberman. when joe lieberman announced early last year that he would not seek reelection to the senate, he called himself a lucky guy for having had the opportunity to serve his state and his country. i would contend that it is we in this chamber and the people throughout connecticut and across our nation who are the ones who are truly fortunate, for joe lieberman's life long commitment to public service, including his 24 years here in the senate. for more than a decade it has been my privilege to serve with joe as the leaders of the senate homeland security and governmental affairs committee. regardless of who has been chairman and who has been ranking member, ours has been a partnership. and indeed, mr. president, i'll never forget when i was losing the chairmanship because of the change in control, joe leaning over to me and saying "don't worry, susan. all that will change is that you'll pass me the gavel." it was typical of his thoughtfulness and generosity. and it is not coincidental, mr. president, that ours is the only committ
to all the people in newtown, connecticut. this was an horrific series of events. second of all, the major problem that i have as a geneticist is that it's impossible to gain much information with the sample size of one. so what you are looking at is one person's dna, and you're trying to say that it's different than other people. but you only have a sample size of one. >> would it be helpful, do you think, to look at the dna of other shooters of those from previous mass shootings? >> well, again, the problem is, we have probably less than five or even ten people that we're talking about. when studies -- accurate genetic studies are done on a whole population, we look for hundreds of different people, and you have to show a strong correlation with that. and the second problem would be what are we trying to look for? i mean, we're going -- the whole idea is you're going in with the notion of looking for something. and that is simply not the way science is done. science is done where you go in expecting things to be the same. we have a hypothesis. and then you try to disprove or p

in newtown, connecticut sales are way up. he will be on the show next. stuart: the final week of the year, usually this is a boom town for charities. people make their contributions to save on taxes and they do those contributions right now. there has been talk that a charitable deduction could be eliminated or restricted. our next guest says that would be a terrible idea. the former chairman of the new york faith council on the arts, welcome to the program. good to have you with us. >> how are you today? stuart: pretty good. if you get a restriction on the charitable tax deduction or it is eliminated i understand charitable contributions would probably o down. i can see that happening but doesn't that imply that the whole reason for giving to charity is to get a tax break as opposed to supporting the good that the charity does? >> that is a misnomer. so many people think we are giving something to the ridge and the wealthy by giving them a tax break. firstly, the charitable sector is $1.9 trillion industry, 5.5% to 6% of our economy, charitable organizations like the salvation army, the

children are being bombarded about the stories of war on christmas. guy up in connecticut the governor who was not going to light the christmas tree and going to call it a holiday tree. mean while 85, 90% of country believes in one form of christianity? >> the irony is in deer born, michigan the state spent $25,000 to build foot baths for muslims at the university of michigan at deer born. now, imagine what would have happened if somebody had spent taxpayer money to build a nativity scene on the campus? you would have gone crazy. it's not just that there is an anti-christian bias in the country, which i think, you know, generally there is, i think the fact that there is a double standard that's even more troubling. >> who is coming up on your show tonight? >> gabby douglas, olympic gold medalist, we also have richard marks, the singer who will be doing a christmas song for us. and then we also have greg gutfeld because we are willing to reach out there and go deep. >> holiday spirit. randy forbes, children's miracle network from virginia will also be with us. >> gutfeld's book by the way "
, connecticut, many wonder what do they have in common? gun tragedy, the loss of 26 lives, and americans suffering from a devastating storm, certainly our hearts goes out to those babies who were lost. but it really speaks to americans in need, and i guess that's why i'm so troubled to be on the floor today, because the framework that we have says to america that when you're in need we will not as this congress and this government be prepared to help you. i think what is disappointing and i know for the speaker, it is probably the same case as i am speaking because just about three days ago we thought there was a deal between the white house and the framework that was offered and the leadership of this house. it's disappointing that in the course of a couple days we've come to a situation where this plan, plan b, raises only about $300 billion from high-income households and the centers for budget priorities suggest that millionaires will get $108,500 per $1 million, over $1 million in tax cuts, but what will the middle class gets? plan b allows the old pre-bush or bush tax cuts to conti
stockton in connecticut. katie, is apple stock down off its high a phenomenally successful stock to hold for so many investors and showing the chart again. you look at technical trading patterns in the stock. do they tell you it's time to buy, sell or hold this stock? >> they tell you it's time to buy and i say that because we need to keep the pullback of yesterday of about 6.4% in to perspective where it follows a relief rally of about 17.5%. so because of that, it has not generated any kind of breakdown in the stock. in fact, apple came back down and tested a level that it reached at the march -- i'm sorry. the may low and area seeing buying pressure in the past and it would be a natural level for buyers to come back in to apple and momentum is really not as bad as it felt yesterday from a longer term perspective. >> all right. so while we got you, if it's 445 bucks, 544 bucks, an opportunity to get in, is there a number it's a time to get out? >> certainly. the initial resistance as we call it is around $600. that's where apple has met selling pressure pretty recently. that's a conser
and work at these nonprofits. it is an economic generator in this town. host: jim from connecticut, republican line. caller: i have two questions. first, if there is no agreement by the december 31st deadline, can the congress act in such a way that any change in the law would be retroactive to january 1, 2013? do you believe the congress will consider solving for the individual taxpayer instead of the lobbyists? how do we get that turned around? guest: my answer to the upper question now, whether or not they can retroactively take on some of these issues so they do not pass it they can go on in postdate, that is something that have done quite often in terms of tax extensions in different bills where they will pass in february but it will be effective until january. host: industries benefiting most from this issue in terms of lobbying against sequestration in this issue of the fiscal cliff. education, health care, civil service and public officials. our last call joining us from buffalo, new york, good morning. caller: are you there? host: please, go ahead. caller: i am 21 years ol
